So we’ve landed!
We are in Australia, a lot of planning and time later and we are finally on Australian soil. We arrived at Brisbane a bit early and were held on the plane as Australian immigration and customs hadn’t even opened yet, a gentle reminder that it was now 5am, we had lost two hours of potential sleep inflight and neither of us had managed an amount of shut eye that would make up function correctly. Luckily though Erin, a friend of Nicola, had offered to pick us up. The half hour we had made up in-flight and the ease of which we grabbed our bags and breezed through immigration and customs, probably due to the fact our flight was the only one to have touched down thus far, meant that we had enough time for a cup of tea and to phone/skype home at one of the airport cafes.
